On Jan 21, 2018, the "Røst" had to be taken out of service by Torghatten Nord due to technical trouble. The ferry "Stetind" was deployed from Sortland to enter the Svolvær-Skrova route as a replacement starting in the evening. In the morning, the "Øykongen" was put in service to carry passengers between Svolvær and Skrova. The ship could not transprt cars, however. The "Øykongen" kept on sailing until the "Stetind" had arrived.
